    Swiss style events that are too large are statistically flawed and cannot be used to determine the best players... The luck of the draw is too big a influence on standings. HOWEVER they are great for the sport because club players can play GMs.

    in the lightning tournament referenced the 2171 beat two GMs and drew 1 as well as beat several other strong players so that result seems just.

    A similar thing happened recently at a lower level. A lightning tournament in Chennai a few days ago had 783 players, and 9 rounds were obviously not enough to get correct results. 39th seeded, 14 year old Visakh [2171] won ahead of many GMs and IMs.

    GM Arun Prasad, also had won all rounds, and drew with Visakh in round 5, however, came 2nd on tie breaks.
